Best described as a cross between his famously successful Dear Mom and The Blue Day Book, Friends to the End examines themes such as why we can’t live without friends, how great friendships grow from humble beginnings, how to identify different types of friendship, what to do when good friends turn bad, and why it’s all so worthwhile.
